Deleted sex scene between Gena Rowlands and James Garner   Saturday, February 12, 2005 (3:03 p.m.) 

I read that in the original cut of the film, the two old versions of the main characters realize that they are the young lovers from earlier in their lives, and then they go back to a room at the nursing home and have sex. It was a passionate and graphic 4-minute love scene that was supposed to revolutionize the concept of elderly-persons sex in Hollywood. They said it was very demanding of Gena Rowlands and James Garner and that no stunt doubles were used during the sex. What happened to this scene? I loved the movie and I want to see them consummate their love after all those years!

In addition, was there any more music composed by Zigman for this scene?

They cut this scene because it was unnecessary and rather gross to watch. There's no need at all to see that sex!

I would like to see that sex. It is always good to see sex. All movies should have at least one pornographic sex scene. Why? Because sex is a natural, wonderful, holy act!!

Who the hell would want to see the older couple doing it when we could see the younger ones pound away at each other instead???!?!?

You can't write music for a scene that wasn't there in the end. But I agree with everyone here, more sex in this movie would have made it perfect!

Ok, what you supposively "read" or "heard" somewhere about a deleted sex scene between Gena Rowlands and James Garner is untrue. First, I saw the movie, and then went through EVERY extra feature on the DVD. Then, I went out and got the book, and no where in there is a sex scene, because in the book, he still realizes that their time is short, and even when they do become "intimate" (i.e. making out) Allie Hamilton flips out and goes back into amnesia. Thank you very much for raising a good arguement though!

Okay, now to clear up some more things I don't agree with. This movie was set in the late 20's and early 30's, there is no way that "more sex scenes" would have made this movie better! It would have made it unrealistic and very tacky. Furthermore, I think that those of you who wish to say that you want more sex scenes are just a bunch of movie geeks who can't get any due to the fact that they spend way too much time obsessing over the unobtainable rather than their own lives.
